    I recognize those cogs - They're probably off of an old clock that swings out of it's case into a triangle. (I can't describe it very well.)

    could you explain to me how you made this, it looks really cool?

    This looks like a good larp prop.
    I have no idea what that gizmo is, but thinking about what it could be is much fun!



    This looks really cool, good job. The only thing I would change is to tarnish the copper some so it matches the rest of the piece.

    hand it over an ammonia bath, cover it 4 a day, and let the fumes do the work, than, to get a really nice look, polish or sand it and repeat

    Good photos, nice looking thing. It would work better as a slideshow as this is a made item rather than a how-to.

    This is a nice little project, plastic gears and pieces can look great given the right paint job. I like the overall feel.

    Perhaps adding some hands, or a little read out display might give it a kind of focal point.

    Also, next time, when you have a project where you are showing what you have completed, it tends to work nicer if you use the slideshow feature, which is designed to show off the project in a much suited way.

    Otherwise, keep it up! your well on the track to becoming a steampunk pro!
